The first release through Kitsune’s newly- announced partnership with Cooperative/Downtown Records will be Is Tropical’s debut album Native To, hitting stores on June 14th. Already known for their stunning live shows where, behind their trademark masks, they effortlessly swoop from raw pop anthems to lo-fi dance songs, the young UK-based trio are currently offering their first single, the up-tempo, dance-rock number, “The Greeks” through an exclusive download on Kitsune’s site here.

With their new album Native To, the UK trio Is Tropical are releasing their unique and signature brand of dance-pop music in America. The twelve tracks that comprise the album flow seamlessly from one to the next while at the same time covering the broad spectrum of musical stylings that catapulted them into the spotlight to begin with. Highlights of the album include the hard-hitting, lo-fi track, “Oranges”, as well as the dreamy and whimsical “Clouds” and “Lies”. See the video for the track “South Pacific” here.

Is Tropical first entered the international scene with the release of their debut single ‘When O’ When’/’Seasick Mutiny’on Hit Club Records in January 2010. Produced by Alalal (The Big Pink / Klaxons), the single attracted the attention of fans and critics alike.

Dividing opinions with the band’s refusal to show their faces, as well as their broad, all-encompassing sound, Is Tropical was soon at the forefront of the conflict between lo-fi purists and those who cherished the strange electronic instrumentals. They soon signed to legendary French label Kitsuné (Digitalism / Two Door Cinema Club).

Is Tropical will be touring throughout Europe and Japan this spring, with more live and festival dates to be announced very soon!
